Did you know that the story of round 1 in 4-way?
posted: Sep 7th, 2003 Wondering about all the penalties in round one? Well, the judges obviously decided to pull through with their new policy regarding certain block techniques. Like it or not, at least they are consistent with their surprise action. Many of the top teams were caught with their "old" techniques. Four of the five top contenders lost points due to penalties, and all of them for the same reason that the NSL News explained yesterday. France, Norway and Italy had centerpoint issues with Block 12 (Zipper - Star), while the U.K. team, Sebastian XL, did Block 1 (Snowflake - Offset) in a way that the judges... (more)
Did you know that the NSL News interviewed the chief judge on the rule interpretation??
posted: Sep 7th, 2003 After the opening "penalty round" of the 4-way event, the NSL News followed up on the judging issue with an interview of the German FAI Event Judge in Gap, Klaus Wellens. Here is the other side of the medal explained by Wellens: (more)
Did you know that teams had to deal with rules today??
posted: Sep 7th, 2003 The competition draw is out, and it does not seem to be very fast, as some of the experts commented it. Does this mean anything when all the teams are jumping the same sequences anyway? DeLand Majik member Solly Williams, who is coaching several teams in Gap, explained how the draw can make a difference: "The slower the draw is, the more difficult it is for any team to run away from the field. We will probably see a tight competition with possibly more teams in the run than with a fast draw. And we might also not see the top teams scoring higher than 22.0 average." The sequences have now been added... (more)
Did you know that the 8-way field is even after round two?
posted: Sep 7th, 2003 The competition is back to ground zero. Round two surprisingly evened the field. France, Russia and U.S.A. are all tied in first place. Russia and Airspeed both went through the whole 50 seconds as if they were the same team, synchronized until the Omniskore freeze frame. Both teams missed the second Donut for the completion of the 20th point by fractions of a second. Actually, the French 8-way team did exactly the same thing. However, they had to accept a penalty when a brainlock to the Double Spiders (M) on top of the fourth page caused this formation to be incomplete when it was keyed. (more)
Did you know that the 8-way games have begun?
posted: Sep 7th, 2003 The games have started. May the best team win. And it is time for the 8-way fans, first of all. The poll at the NSL World Meet Forum sees Arizona Airspeed as the big winner of the event, no chances for Russia or France. We will take a closer look at the 8-way situation later today. Let's first see what the first round of the meet has done to the three top teams. (more)
Did you know that Gap seems to be ready for Mondial 2003?
posted: Sep 6th, 2003 The transition of the NSL News headquarters from DeLand to Gap, France, went smoother than expected. It took a few hours and hick-ups to set up the office, but finally the NSL computer was successfully connected to the internet. NSL News reporter Kurt Gaebel was fortunate enough to run right into Omniskore Master T1 Ted Wagner after arrival and when the first technical problems occurred. Jump Shack President John Sherman also offered his technical expertise to help, while his Marketing Manager and U.S. team member Nancy La Riviere tested the "Mega Booster". (more)
